Sending forme or fees with 1-129

I did the K1 in 2013 for my husband but I had help with filing. Now I am trying to help someone else but I don’t recall. My son is engaged to a girl from Guatemala. Crazy how he met someone almost the same way as me. He has i-129 ready to go as well as the $535 filing fee. I thought there was another form and fee when filing through USCIS but it has been a while so I am asking to make sure. Can anyone who has done this recently help? Is the biometrics fee sent then or just with adjustment of status?

he should send to USCIS a check ( or money order ) for $535 + I-129F form + evidence of meeting in person and evidence of ongoing relationship + letter of intent to marry for both ( your son and his fiance ) . the G-325 is no longer needed and the the form G-1145 is optinal ( to send a e-mail with his case number)

that's everything he need to send at this stage 

the  biometrics fee should be sent when they 're filling for AOS (green card)

Thanks!! I felt like I sent more but maybe it was different on 2013. I think I used that rapid visa service and they walked me through it all. Jacob is doing this himself and I am trying to help. Looks like they have all of the evidence ready. They have both traveled 4 times to each other’s countries. He actually has a trip planned at the end of June again too. He wants everything to be in the mail before he takes that trip.

I thought there was another form and fee when filing through USCIS but it has been a while so I am asking to make sure. Can anyone who has done this recently help? Is the biometrics fee sent then or just with adjustment of status? AOS, ROC, N-400 have biometric fees

I have also been helping someone with their visa paperwork. I have realized that things change and I have forgotten some stuff. As a consequence, I have been referring my friend to the VJ guides, such as the step-by-step K1 Visa guide: https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide/ and the USICS Form I-129F link: https://www.uscis.gov/i-129f. They are  great tools and check-off lists to make sure that you don't forget/miss something.:thumbs:

 

BTW:

Form I-129   = Petition for Non-Immigrant Worker

Form I-129F = Petition for Alien Fiance(e)

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)
